Planning Your Mississippi River Canoe Trip

Buck Nelson has hiked the big three trails. {Buck is famous for 22 mile days as standard on a trail.}
Hiked the Oregon Coast.
Bicycled across the Southern US.
Done one 700 miler in Alaska.
Then a 1,000 miler, also solo, across the Brooks.
Then this last summer he went without much of a trail Mexico to Canada on the plateau.
(Desert Trail Thru-Hike: Mexico to Canada - )

This is just about his 67 days floating the Mississippi by canoe.

Will the big boats destroy me?
They will if you don’t pay attention. Below Minneapolis/St. Paul, where the lock and dam system starts, the navigation channel is marked by red and green buoys. You should be especially aware whenever crossing the river through this main channel and when approaching bends in the river. It is usually safer to take the inside bend than the outside bend because you are more likely to stay out of the deep-water channel, and you’ll be less susceptible to the huge wakes thrown off by towboats rounding the bend........
